Perks of 90 year old firefighting techniques 🤷🏼♀️
A bloody good climb up and above the canopy of the South West's amazing karri forests🌳🧗♂️
Chilling out with the birds in the canopy of Karri Trees from the Gloucester Tree lookout, 58 metres above the ground ⛅️ 🌳
First climbed the Gloucester tree 3 years ago together. Proud to say that unlike last time Chanice didn't cry halfway up
Just climbed a tree 53m in the air ... I was quietly shitting myself if I'm being honest
This is the tallest tree in the known solar system at 53m tall. I climbed it to the top using those wobbly bits of steel hammered into the bark. There is no safety cage. I am stupid. #treeclimbing #gloucestertree

A bird that I've waited 3 years to finally photograph! I see them now and then in the Perth hills, but they seem to be pretty uncommon and rarely stick around for long enough to get a picture.
I headed over to Pemberton in @australiassw
on Sunday because I knew they are common in the area, this one even jumped onto my shoe 😅
Check out the height on this bad boy. 62m and I scaled the thing. Jelly legs and lots of 'do not look down moments' .
Used in the 1940/50s as a means to see fires across the region. 1 of 8 Kerri trees. It still has the old pins (which wobble) dug into the trunk to climb up. No harness, no safety net.

The reviews say: 53m, no safety | The jelly legs kick in around a quarter of the way up. This is fiendishly cruel and it's only going to get worse | Only 20 percent of visitors climb to the top of the tree | All goes o.k. if there is no accident 👀
